Buttermilk gets the red out....

I've been using a buttermilk/distilled water combo on Tyler's stained beard and mustache now for about 2 months and am finally posting the results. It really does work! I have posted both the before and after pictures using the same pose, room, lighting, etc. so that you can the difference. I'm very pleased and happy to know that I am not putting anything into his system, as I am using it topically.

Wow, that's great! Please tell more. What proportions of distilled water to buttermilk? How long do you leave it on? I picture having to hold him while it's on... otherwise a drippy mess all over? I want to try this, just need more detail on the logistics..

It's a remedy given me by his groomer. The mixture is half buttermilk and half distilled water. I have it in a spray bottle, although spraying it directly on his face and chin can be a challenge, so I spray some in my hand and rub it on the stains. I blot it a bit so that it doesn't drip, but leave it in place until it dries. It doesn't seem to drip off at all. It should be done twice a day, but I must admit that some days I've given him one treatment and other days when life gets in the way, I haven't done it at all. The solution, of course, must be refrigerated so it is cold when you put it on and when I tried spraying it on, it startled him. I think the results are amazing!

OMG thanks for posting the pictures! Huge difference!~motivates me to really stick to it. I THINK i did it on Canela two days this week (morning and night) I really need to stay on top of it. We use AE for about 3 months last year - the stains went away but it came back even worse. I know I didn't want to go back to AE, I rather stick to the buttermilk method! Thx again!

Looks much better but is really hard to tell as the after image is much different in the color temperature. Notice the guard rail on the before image is white. On the after it is blue. Other objects are different too but that was the most obvious. (there's an overall blue cast)

I hear what you're saying, as the first day was sunny and yesterday was cloudy, but take my word for it. The red is all gone! In addition to the buttermilk, I wipe his beard after every drink that he takes to keep it dry. I am very, very pleased with the outcome and will continue using the formula and then stop for a while to see if it recurs.
